This remastered reprinting of an album 'River Songs' which was published for the first time in 2009 on 'Clinical Archives' netlabel. Reprinting is published in the new edition: in the track list two tracks are replaced, two bonus tracks are added.
'River Songs' is an album in which I tried to connect some musical elements: ambient, modern classical, Ethnic and Instrumental. Everything together forms uniform, conceptual work about the great Russian Volga River. This album isn't typical for my today's creativity. 'River Songs' is a synthesis of many live tools and a big collection of samples (including, samples from Magix company library).
